2 Questions about this car (its mums car but I use it very often and these annoy me and her quite a lot):

1) How can we set the clock? It has no controls by the clock itself, and the manual that came with the car, is for a different car completely but that car has its clock controlled through the radio but its once again, a completely different radio. So if you could help us with that, it'd be great.

2) When I try to play CD's burnt from my computer it says E - 2 on the screen and I can't do anything but change it back to radio. I made sure when burning the disk that it was set to master or whatever so that radios could use it and I have no idea what to do about that, it doesn't bother me as much as I can still use the radio and use official disks but its annoying none the less.

Cheers,
Sam. 

ps. Car is out of warranty before you ask.

Re the CD issue: many older cd players - car or home - would not support CD-R at all. So its probably not something that can be fixed without a new headunit.

Maybe try this...

http://wiki.answers.com/Q/How_do_you_change_the_clock_of_a_mitsubishi_diamante

Switch key into Aux position - push mode button and use up/down arrows to adjust the clock.

There should be an option in your CD software to "finalise" the CD when it's written.

I don't think this is the same as "master" but it might be.

If a CD is finalised then you can't add anything else to it. Some CD players need this.

Yeh thats what I did. I used windows media player as I'm not installing Nero on this loan PC. It said for the description of mastered that the disk is finalized and I need to burn all files at once and format the disk if I want to use it again etc..

OK, it's definitely not that then.

The only other thought is based on the "use it again" part of your reply and that is are you using CD-R or CD-RW?

I suspect you are using CD-R in which case you're pretty well stuffed.

CD-RW
I don't have any blank CD-R's. I have plenty of blank DVD's and one CD-RW (the one in question). Should I buy a blank CD-R to try?

Yes, you need to go and buy a CD-R. Try and get a CD-R made for Audio burning.
When you burn the disk do it at the slowest speed possible (it can make a difference)

My car stereo is fussy when it comes to home made cd's and using audio CD-R & burning slowly helps.

Also all CD-R's are not the same.. Various brands might work or might not work..

Yeah some work with +R and some with -R types too.
Definitely a lot of factory stereos don't like RW formats.

I thought +R and -R were for DVDs, not CDs or am I hopelessly confused (as usual)?

Ha sorry, my bad.  No you are spot on.

(guilty of thinking of an early portable DVD player that I have at home that is just as picky with disc format and type, plays DVD+R only I think, not -R or any form of RW).

I guess I'm showing my old age here :)

It's much easier to just plug in a USB stick with a file on it.

I'm glad someone thought to ask, because I dismissed this is as obvious. Read-Writable disks are entirely different in composition to CD-R Disks. You need to use -R (or +R), finalised, one-write disks if you want to emulate Audio CD's.

Support for RW disks on audio is a much, much newer thing. They were originally conceived for use as Data CD's predominantly...

I guess it really is a sign of the fact we're approaching yet another generation gap in the IT world? :o

Makes me feel old...
